A Peek Inside My Heart


Typically when I write a post it is a tutorial showing you how to sew something or showing off something I've made.  Today is NOT typical. I thought it would be nice for y'all to get to know me and not just the things I make.  So today I am going to share my heart with you.
If you read my blog regularly you know that I love to sew.
What you may not know is that I am a Christian. Last summer my husband and I rededicated or lives to Christ.  We have tried put God first in our lives every single day.  I have been trying to find to my way. I wasn't sure what path God had for me.  What am I supposed  do???  Have you ever felt like that?  You know you are where you are supposed to be, but you don't know what you are supposed to do. So for the you wait, and wait, and wait for the answer.  And then slowly you start to see what the plan is.
During the Christmas season our Pastor preached about Leveraging Your Resources to be all you can be in Christ.  My immediate response was " I don't have any resources".  The I slowly began to realize sewing is my biggest resource.  So then I was trying to think of things I could do through my sewing to show God's love to others.  I was stumped!!!!  Two weeks ago the ideas started flooding in to my head. I made a list of these ideas. Some of these ideas are huge! Asl I looked at my list all I could think was there is no way I can do this. I'm just a Stay At Home Mom.  There is no way I can do this!
Wouldn't you know the next day, Sunday, in the Pastors' sermon he said " You are not just a stay at home Mom. God wants to use you to change lives."  All I could think was Wow!!!! I know in my heart that was for me.  I really needed to here that!
So I'm going to step out and follow this path God has laid out for me. I'm just taking it one step at a time.

My first step is a baby step.
I'm going to start
 Make A Difference Monday
 Each Monday I am going to tell you what I am doing that week to make a difference in someone's life.  It might be as simple as sending a card to someone or it could be making something for someone in need. 
I  really hope you will join me in this!!
I am sooo excited about this and I can't wait to get started Monday.

You don't know what you just did. How you just spoke into my heart!! I am a fairly new Christian of about 4.5 yrs. I recently went through something like this. How can I make a change, what can I do? I am a full time RN, full time mom and on a limited budget. Something stirred in my heart and wouldn't go away, but what was it? Until one day it all came together, Shoes for Haiti. It is a long and awesome story, but in the end 81 lbs of shoes are flying to Haiti this week. It is amazing to see God work. It will be amazing to see what He does in your life. What a journey it is!! Sorry for the long reply, you got me so excited!!
God Bless,
Shelley
